Kohl’s named to Dow Jones Sustainability Index for 3rd time


S&P Global has named Kohl’s to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index
(DJSI) for the third year in a row. This recognition signifies the
retailer’s commitment to sustainability performance, as well as
environmental, social and governance goals.

The DJSI is one of the first global sustainability benchmarks,
having launched in 1999. It measures the performance of the global
companies, evaluating impact on people, communities and the
planet.

Kohl’s focuses its sustainability goals in three key areas: climate
action, waste/ recycling and sustainable sourcing, with quantitative
targets for each. The company has been working to reduce greenhouse
gas emissions, achieve 100 percent sustainably sourced cotton and has
already succeeded in diverting 84 percent of its waste from
landfills.

“The DJSI’s continued recognition of Kohl’s serves as a reliable
indicator of the strength of our ESG stewardship initiatives,” Steve
Thomas, Kohl’s chief risk and compliance officer, said in a statement.
“We believe that incorporating sustainable solutions into the way
Kohl’s conducts business will help to build better futures for our
customers, our associates, and their families and we are pleased to be
acknowledged for these efforts.”
